A major player in the world of high-end decoration, Edition Bougainville continues to seduce architects and decorators around the world. The reason? Their haute couture carpets, hand-knotted in the purest Nepalese and Indian tradition. Since January, this famous house from Cannes has opened a showroom in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, rue Bonaparte. A nice way to meet its customers! The editorial staff of Signatures Singulières Magazine had the chance to push the doors of this new temple of decoration in the capital. We’ll tell you a few enthusiastic words about it…

Creator of haute couture carpets, Edition Bougainville dresses prestigious places in the hotel, yachting and residential sectors. With its own integrated design office, Edition Bougainville has built its reputation on the numerous possibilities of customization of its handmade carpets. Colors, sizes, shapes, design: the brand’s dedicated workshops are able to meet the most demanding requests from around the world.
The opening of the Parisian showroom responds to the need to present the latest Edition Bougainville collections to the general public. Staged in the sublime setting of 25 rue Bonaparte, the carpets offer the eye all the subtleties of their graded colors or their chiseled textures. In the heart of this Parisian setting, the editors of Signatures Singulières Magazine also had the opportunity to discover the brand’s material library. This library is intended to represent in an exhaustive way all the different sectors of activity, the different collections and all the techniques offered by Edition Bougainville. A gold mine to catch a glimpse of all the possibilities…
For 2023, Edition Bougainville is bringing a breath of fresh air to its new carpet collection. Dynamic, colorful and innovative, it marks a turning point in the creativity of this French house. The 48 new models integrate the existing Renaissance, Inspiration, Charleston and Chromatic collections. Free interpretation of 18th century French carpets, travel souvenirs, harmonious combinations of colors drawn from nature or the Decorative Arts, they embody luxury and elegance à la française. This is undoubtedly due to their handcrafted production in the brand’s exclusive workshops.
In the heart of the ancestral carpet-making regions of Nepal and India, Edition Bougainville calls on the rare know-how of weavers who hand-knot each piece it produces. Or how to make tradition live up to modernity! Constantly pushing the limits of its creativity, Edition Bougainville has just launched a brand new collection beautifully named Texture. As its name suggests, this singular range features tone-on-tone rugs in a palette of neutral shades. Their originality lies in the work on the heights of the fibers, their textures and the 3D effects they create. Bijoux de sols is an almost euphemistic expression to designate his handcrafted creations at the borders of art.
